    You've taught yourself how to squat on your heels. This can happen with someone that's been told they have persistent knee slide. Rather than get...

    Yeah, get some lifters. We ask for a work set or challenging set of five reps because at that weight it will reveal things that lighter weights may...

    This happens to me when things are dry. My nose explodes. I'm not sure I've known anyone to valsalva "too hard". I think most people tend not to...

    Simply lift your chest up. You won't get a lot of range, but it will get the thoracic erectors to do their job. Now the trick is to learn to hold...

    Lean over more and sooner. I don't know that the TUBOW is doing you any good where it is if you're working on knee slide. Your knee slide is related...

    You keep futzing around in the bottom and moving the bar. The setup for the power clean is the same as the deadlift, except the hips will be a bit...

    Pete Troupos replied to a thread I detrained in Technique
    Some weight on the bar will help next time. An empty bar isn't very useful for determining a great deal most of the time. Narrow your stance up so...

    Yeah, you're not leaning over enough. But also, your upper back is soft so if you were to lean over, the bar is likely moving on you. Get your chest...

    You're immediately opening your chest to get the bar off the ground and pulling the bar around your knees. Stay out over the bar longer and break it...
